Surf Dog Surf-A-Thon

The State announced today that San Onofre would host the Surf Dog Surf-A-Thon World Championships next summer, August 14-15. Pictured below are the winner's from last weekends' 4th annual Helen Woodward Surf Dog Surf-a-thon held in Del Mar. The event raises money for homeless animals at the Helen Woodward Animal Center.

There were about 100 dogs competing in the contest. Heats with four dogs surfed it out in a battle to get the top spot in their heat which took them to the finals.

The final competition was fast and furious as the dogs rushed to get in as many waves as they could in a 20 minute time frame. Dogs were scored on the length of the ride, size of the wave, and other tricks on the board, such as turning around or riding backwards. Buddy, a Jack Russell terrier from Newport Beach rode one of the last waves of the heat.

Next up for the mutts is the Surf City Surf Dog Contest in Huntington Beach on October 11th.

Perhaps NeoN wants those who comment to verify who they are so it doesn't fill up with nonsense and garbage like on this blog!

We could do that also. We tried once. It went over like a lead balloon. Comments are always welcome here, nonsense and garbage included. You don't like it, you know the drill...

He's blocking all comments still. It has nothing to do with nonsense and garbage. He is like a pirrahna, you know, "My way or the highway". Or something like that.
